Great story. World War two, men love women, then they go to war and the war changes them. There are people from your childhood that you remember as part of your romantic dreams. You go through life with the infatuation of these youthful dreams. One day something happens and the reality of who the person that you loved hits you in the face. Great romantic story. Good actors but... Well, you have to know how to tell it. The director clearly is not up to the task. In the end the film is just a disappointment. Too bad. The interactions are bad, stilted, unreal. The emotions that these characters should display are not there. Instead the viewer get a fare of strange scenes that do not add up at all. The two female friends, huh , friends do not interact like this. Dylan, there are persons like this, egocentric, in love with themselves, but...Dylan is not really shown as such. Dylan is just a distant caricature of that person that he should have been. I think some talented director should pick up this great story and do it again the way it should have been done.
